Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I'm a scribbler. I keep a notebook on hand at all times in case of inspiration. I write in notebooks during my regular writing times, then transcribe everything onto the computer later. It's not efficient, but I'm a horrible typist.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yep. A 13,000 word story about what would happen if you took the right-to-life concept to the extreme (hint: every egg and sperm are used to seed automated colony ships).
